Depending upon what desktop you want or need, a Fedora 25 is still
available in i386.  You can download the netinst, do a minimal install then
add your desktop. It's probably the closest thing to CentOS for now.
Something like openbox, or even better, dwm, probably wouldn't strain its
resources too much.
